Sundays in Patagonia

My favorite mountain proved to be Cerro Torre in Argentina.  It was the site of one of the most famous mountaineering hoaxes featured in a film titled "The Rocks Cry Out".  I had seen parts of the film years ago, and tried to find it after out trip.....Seems not to exist anymore.  ( I've linked to a National Geographic article, because if you search for the title of the film you'll be sent to evangelical christian sites.  Apparently someone used the same name for a recent religious book.)

The day of our visit there was supposed to be a Base Jumper.  Very dangerous sport.  But the weather closed in (Below) and the jumps was canceled. 



  1. Beautifully serene... I wanna go there!

  2. It was very nice and well maintained. The Young People in Argentina have the option of volunteering at National Parks in lieu of other National Service.
